It looks to me like they've made a higher-detail version of the window housing for the zoom-in.
Well, you'd get a magnified compressed view at the closest look ... IF an actual zoom effect was used as opposed to just representing the move as a physical motion through space ... if you were shooting it with the same size lens throughout the shot
, there wouldn't be distortion arising unless you were in way WAY close, and the distortion would roll to one side.
If you look at live-action of Sarek walking with FedPrez in TVH, you can see the lines of the room distort significantly as they go screen right, due to the wide angle lens.
